Truth

The truth dances at the edge of my vision
Unsure who's truth I should follow
Each held with such strong conviction
Still their truths shimmer like a mirage
The closer I get
The further it travels
Out of my reach
My tongue is swollen
I continue to drink sand
Will my thirst ever be quenched
Is there even a single drop to swallow
They promised fountains

    Hi Abdul, how are you doing? I got a lot further than this but this was the maximum number of lines for the contest. If you read part two you will see the rest that I wrote.

    Mirages can look very much like the real deal. And when you're sweltering hot and desperate... anything can feel like water. Great story of one being led astray...
